One In Five for 17 February 2013

From One In Five, 7:06 pm on 17 February 2013

This week on One in Five, Katy Gosset drops in on the inaugural Disability Studies Class at Otago University's Summer School. This relatively new academic field examines disability across a range of disciplines, focusing on the experiences, rights and leadership of disabled people. It also encourages students to consider where their own ideas about disability come from and to question whether those perceptions are correct.
